The joyful day!

RIP Art Buchwald

An article here has more details, and some wonderful quotes as well

I think my favorite is "Have you ever seen a candidate talking to a rich person on television?"

He was deeply funny, and deeply observant.
The joyful day!

That quote game

I decided to pull some quotes out on some things I have watched (or wanted to watch) recently. Take a guess. There are some movies and some TV.

2 - Time counts and keeps countin', and we knows now finding the trick of what's been and lost ain't no easy ride. braider - Mad Max - Beyond Thunderdome

3 - I knew daredevils, and I ain't got nothin' against them, it's just they're all dead.jermynsavile - The Stunt Man

7 - But, as a famous person once said, "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time." And as I - another more famous person - once said, "If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like." shsilver - Max Headroom

I am all dried out ... cold spells do that to me ... throat is itchy ... not a cold, just dry.

On the other hand, I had a good time in the studio and laid down a very likely backing track for the new record ... so I want to go perform. the problem

Both possible places to go play tonight are smoking venues ... ack ... there is a new music open mike ... and the standup open mike ... I have about 15 minutes to make up my mind ...

I hate smoking venues ... I really do ...
The joyful day!


The open mike moved to another place ... as I mentioned earlier. It's a bar, which means that stuff like mine doesn't go down well ... but ... I played a pretty good set.
